Clos Apalta 2018

Clos Apalta 2018

Full of character and depth, this stretches out as it opens. Higher alcohol than the estate’s second wine Le Petit Clos, but you feel it less on this wine because there is so much at play here. Complex and confident, with a flood of flavour; extremely muscular and intense but you get salinity and juice that keeps up the pace, running alongside the fruit from start to finish. Tight tannins; needs a few years in bottle.
